The best way to get involved with Rural Action is to become a member. Member support and participation make our programs possible. Member committees initiate Rural Action projects, and membership dues and donations ensure that they continue. Members are encouraged to volunteer their time and talents through a range of committees and projects in their communities or around special interests like energy or land restoration. Members also elect the Rural Action Board of Directors and stay up to date through newsletters and electronic communication.
For information about how to start a committee or a membership chapter in your community, call Executive Director Michelle Decker at 740-767-4938.
Member benefits include:
- Copies of the Rural Report and Annual Report
- A subscription to the Rural Rambler, our E-Newsletter
- Member rates on workshops and events
- Reduced prices on select merchandise
- Annual Meeting Voting Privileges
The Rural Action Giving Society was established in 2004 to create a more sustainable funding structure for Rural Action and give community members an opportunity to contribute to the organizationï¿½s work on a long-term basis.
The Giving Society consists of Gifts of Community ($10,000 for five years), Gifts of Action ($5,000 for five years), Gifts of Hope ($1,000 for five years) and Multi-Year Gifts.
If you are interested in joining the Giving Society and making a multi-year pledge to help sustain our organization in its work to revitalize Appalachian Ohio, please contact Susan Roth: 740-767-4938 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
